Yeah, true...but ya know, when I see an old Jorma K, or Leo K, or St Winwood/EricC, and even decrepit GBaker barely able to get on the drum kit, I still see a sense of real joy in being there (PHil these days too, right? Folks say that...).

At times that was hard to "see" w Jerry (by 82 he could seem really zonked on stage), and that was more imprt (to me) than "hey, why doesn't he jump like Sting or Pete T or whoever"...and yea, I never thought--at the time--that the breaks were esp long. Back then, again, prior to 82, it was only a bit more than any other band we saw.
